The Worst Text You Could Ever Receive…

My goodness, it's terrible Super bad That’s right, it’s a disaster To be honest, the matter is much more serious than I thought A simple text symbol that crashed iMessage Just such a symbol makes iMessage completely unusable but I asked Will to look into it to see what the hell was going on It turns out that the actual situation is much more serious On his Macbook, this symbol crashed Havok directly The Note application on the notebook has crashed Just because there is a note in it that contains this symbol Just need a symbol That’s why I called Will over because he was studying this all morning Let’s test it in different ways to see how bad it is His Android machine is here, there is another one here, and then the iPhone X I will copy this symbol in the SMS chat and send it out, and send it to the Android device using the Android device, so that I can confirm that this is a problem only for iOS and OSX.

let's start My cell phone signal is a bit poor, so… Got it, look Nothing happens on the Android machine But what's going to happen next is a bit risky Just such a simple symbol may directly crash the messaging application on iPhone X Kind of crazy The ghost knows if we find this, will other apps have problems? Give it to Jack, show them Okay, that symbol is there, once the mouse touches that symbol Highlight it… collapsed! Show them what happens when you open the note app The note-taking app can’t even be opened IPhone X on the left, your phone on the right I put my phone card in, it might be a disaster I want to warn you, don't do this! I'm not kidding, it's really bad This symbol may crash your phone Yes, let them see what we are talking about Symbols are copied in The SIM card is read on the iPhone X send Will told me before that this is a foreign language Yes, I think it should be the Indian language Anyway, the language symbols of individual countries What if you are in this country? Do you have this symbol on your keyboard? Everyone is going to collapse The sending speed is a bit slow Why I feel that as long as I send a Test, he won’t crash It takes some time Did the iPhone receive it? Oh My God A little dangerous WOW! The phone restarted directly! If I open the text message, click on this text message Ready? But I don’t know why my iMessage app didn’t crash completely Because my next text message rejected the previous one, so it’s okay If someone is stupid and sends you this symbol, then he is willing to help you He can send you a rescue text message In this case, when you open the SMS, the phone does not need to display this symbol Before I send the rescue SMS, I first try to open the SMS app Now send a rescue text message, and then…

BOOM! I can enter the SMS application now If I take the initiative to open the chat window with Will SMS app will still crash collapsed! But if you copy this symbol in and post it, the iPhone will crash again. SMS arrived Open…crash It crashed immediately, and the text message was completely useless Completely collapsed The extent of this matter is more serious than I thought Apple, I hope you can find some engineers to see what's going on This is a big problem Remember, your Uncle Lewis told you not to do this They don’t realize how much we rely on technology now Just such a small bug immediately makes you panic It’s just a small symbol that makes so many things fall apart Willy Do, thank you for investigating this matter and sacrificing your own computer for presentation I'll go back and use my Pixel 2 XL hhhh, Android device Then I want to send this to Jack Do not! Don't do that! I was kidding, kidding

“What does the consumer want today when it comes to smartphones? Good looks, features, great camera and a price tag which makes it worth the purchase. If one broadly classifies, there is a section of consumers which prefers budget smartphones that can be used for a small amount of time and then upgraded as desired without burning a hole in the pocket. The second category absolutely swears by the premium price tag and treats the device like a child for a significant number of years and upgrading only when there is a dire need. Then there is a third category, which somewhere lies between the budget or mid-range and premium segment. Apologies for stereotyping here, but similar to how the structure of upper middle class families works, these range of upper mid-range smartphones also offer a gorgeous architecture, aping the premium segment, while keeping the costs controlled by not being over ambitious with specs”

Introducing the Google Pixel and Pixel XL

Introducing the Google Pixel and Pixel XL

The Pixel and Pixel XL are two new phones soon to be available. They have entirely been designed by Google, and feature a bunch of cool and useful Google-based features, built right in to the phone itself.

New Features

One of the core features of the Pixel phones is what is being called the Google Assistant, an updated take on the Ok Google feature included with some of the newer Android phones. You can access the Assistant by saying ‘Ok Google’ out loud, or by holding down on the home button. According to Google, the more you use it, the more useful it gets.

Google has also stated that anyone buying a Pixel will also receive unlimited storage for all of their photos and videos, all stored at full resolution online in Google Photos. This will greatly help reduce the amount of storage space normally taken up by your photos, allowing you to save more of what really matters to you to your device, like apps and music.

The phone also features Rapid Charge technology via the the reversible USB Type-C charger, giving you up to 7 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes. And when you aren’t using your phone, Doze automatically puts it into a sleep state to extend your battery life.
